At the same time I found the “Georgia State” fabric (see info here) I picked up some Virginia State fabric to make a quilt for my Virginia family members for Christmas. It made a great patchwork quilt.

Just complete another String Quilt for the upcoming class on Sunday. This one is from a jelly roll so the strips are more uniform than the first one. (See it here.) The classes on Sunday is the first in a series of Block of the Month quilt classes that we are going to be holding at The Studio over the course of this next year. If you are interested in learning to quilt contact kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com to get on the wait list for class.

I am not sure whether to thank or curse the day I discovered a YouTube video on Quilt As You Go (QAYG). I wish I could remember where I first saw it but it was probably on Facebook but I had been wanting to do some quilting but I don’t have a long-arm machine and when I had tried in the past to quilt on my “regular” sewing machine it was just too bulky to work well. But then I read about QAYG…..and I am hooked. It is addictive (or maybe it is just my personality that becomes addicted to fun projects). It is so easy and fun and looks great!!!! These photos are the front and back of my first QAYG quilt. It’s a String Quilt made from a box of scraps that I was getting ready to throw out. I’d gone through the box a few times and pulled out larger pieces but these were all very small and had been sitting in a closet for several years and I wanted to clean out the space. So before I tossed the box I thought why not see if there is a project that might work….and I found this String Quilt idea…..and I LOVE IT! As you can imagine, I have LOADS of ideas for other quilts to make. Can’t wait!!!

I spent almost the entire day yesterday cutting rag quilts for Sewing Camp today and tomorrow for kids at The Studio. Why did it take so long? Because I cut 16 rag quilts and pillow tops……as we have 12 students and they needed a selection from which to choose. Here’s my question: How many people do you know that have enough fabric on hand at their home to be able to cut 16 quilts and pillows? That is about 120 yards of fabric! That was a LOT of cutting. Whew!!!

Have you got tons of t-shirts that you love but never wear any more?  If you are like me, you do!  You picked them up on vacation….or they have a theme you love…and you had to have it but you just can’t wear them all.  Time to repurpose those shirts into something you will use….a nice blanket or throw.  Our first T-shirt Rag Quilt workshop is coming up on March 30-31.  Click here for more information….Saturday we will cut and Sunday we will sew. There is one seat left in this session but you have time to gather up those shirts for the next one on Saturday, April 6th.  Click here for that info.  These are fun to make and you will enjoy having the memories where you can enjoy them more.

Spent the day working on a new Rag Quilt design for an upcoming class.  This one had little blocks with saying on them centered on other fabric designs.  Trying to find a way to make an easy quilt for people who don’t sew a lot but won’t a special quilt.  Hoping to have the clipping done and a couple of washes tomorrow.

Sunflower Quilts

Yesterday we made Sunflower Rag Quilts at The Studio.  What a beautiful project.  Everyone’s looks different as they all selected their fabrics.  This is a little more advanced than our beginner Rag Quilt (you can register for the next beginning rag quilt here) so you need a little experience to sew the flower.  We’ll be doing it again at the first of the year.  We are thinking of a daisy…either white or a pink gerber!
